As the Genealogy by the States series moves out to the Midwest and beyond, there’s going to be an increasing number of states where I do not have a direct connection to the state or that connection is rather remote. This week’s state of Indiana is one of those states where I do not have any connection at all. Therefore, this week I’m highlighting a Indiana resource I found.

The Indiana State Digital Archives is a great resource for those of you with ancestors in Indiana.

I did not find a single mention in my genealogy database in reference to the state of Louisiana. This is one of those weeks where I’m just going to highlight a particular genealogy resource I’ve found for the state of Louisiana.

The Louisiana Digital Archives has a wide collection of digital collections. You can browse various collections by topic, time period, name and more.

Here are a few I found particularly interesting

  • Civil War Photograph Album:
  • This album contain a number of photographs of soldiers from the civil war. They are mostly officers and there are not a whole lot of them, but ig your ancestor was an officer from Louisiana, you might get lucky.

  • Louisiana Newspaper Access Program:
  • This collection contains various newspapers which have been digitized and are available for browsing. Some of the newspapers include the Baton-Rouge Gazette and Louisiana Planter. Perhaps you’ll find your ancestor’s name or some of their neighbors listed in the newspaper.

If you have Louisiana ancestors, be sure to check out this website.

Genealogy by the States – Week 17 – Ohio

I don’t have any direct descendants within the state of Ohio. My wife’s ancestor Joseph Dallas Pool was from the state of Georgia. I previously wrote about him when I talked about my Georgia Connections. I tracked one of his sons Joe Henry Poole to Ohio, which is this week’s Ohio Connection.

Joe Henry Pool was the son of Joseph Dallas Pool and Nancy Osborne. He was born on September 2, 1899 in Georgia. Between the years 1921 and 1924. His wife, Anna May Moon, their son William and a daughter moved to Ohio. In 1924, Joe and Anna welcomed another boy to the family. On February 19, 1927, they welcomed Nadine to their growing family. I have not mentioned the names of one known son and one known daughter as it’s possible they are still living. I did not want to mention a living individuals name without first asking them and I was also unable to locate them to ask.

Joe Henry died on Apr 11, 1949 in Cleveland, Ohio. Joe’s wife Anna lived for another 40 years and died on Apr 25, 1989 also in Cleveland, Ohio.
